Drama in Schools survey findings

The Cultural Learning Alliance has written a summary paper outlining the findings of its recent Drama in Schools survey, in response to the proposed new English Primary Curriculum which makes no specific mention of Drama.

Posted: 10/02/2012

The CLA said that the survey found that over 90% of their members feel that the draft curriculum doesn’t set out the right prioirties for English, and that over 98% of respondents think that Drama will not be taught adequately in schools if this Curriculum comes into force.

The summary paper of findings includes comments and evidence from teachers, young people, parents, artists, academic institutions (such as the Institue of Education and Goldsmiths College), cultural organisations (such as the National Theatre and the Barbican Guildhall School of Music and Drama) and leading educational bodies (including the National Association for the Teaching of English and National Drama).

You can read the summary paper on the CLA website.
